I was going through my iTunes music library and damn there are a lot of repeat song titles. Always looking for new post ideas, it hit me. What are the most over used song titles? Now I have a post idea and so I am going to bring you the Top 10 Overused Song Titles in music…or at least my musical library.
Now there were several that barely missed the cut. They were the following titles: “Free”, “Forever”, “Without You”, each with 12 titles in my library. And several with 11 songs including “Stand Up”, “Someday”, “Scream” and “Save Me”…a lot starting with “S” apparently.
10. “You”: I have 12 different songs in my library with this title. The artists are rather varied with The Afters, Black Stone Cherry, Bonnie Raitt, Buckcherry, Candlebox, Collective Soul, Elliott Yamin, Gotthard, Marvin Gaye, Richie Kotzen, Safetysuit and Keith Urban.
For My Sunday Song #22, my wife has selected “There Will Come A Day” by Faith Hill. I will now turn it over to my wife…
I will never forget seeing Faith Hill perform this song on television after the 9/11 attacks. She, along with numerous other artists, participated in a fundraising telethon with all net proceeds benefitting the United Way’s September 11th Telethon Fund. The combination of her powerful voice and the message that we can all relate to within the first four lines (especially after watching the evening news from any city) makes this one of my all time favorite songs. This song also paints the perfect picture of that amazing day when we will meet our maker. Regardless of what is going on in our world we can count on the fact that “there will come a day”.
This song is from her 4th studio album Breathe released in November 1999. Two things about “favorite songs” of mine to keep in mind as you read over the next 8 weeks and get to know me: 1) when I find something I like, I play it over and over and over, and 2) if I’m in the car and I’m alone, I sing really loud and there’s probably some dancing in there too. I’ve always done these two things, they aren’t things that happened with age and nope, I didn’t care then if people saw me singing and dancing in the car and I don’t care now.
